The cabinet’s most obvious, and attractive, attribute, needless to say, is its distinctive "S" shaped design which has the unique and characteristic Art Deco feel about it whilst at the same time being both special and very memorable.
Dating from the last quarter of the 20th century, this eye-catching item of Art Deco furniture would be just as at home in a bedroom, lounge or almost any room in the house. To provide storage, there are four very unusually-shaped drawers on either side making this cabinet appropriate to stand in the centre of a room if required - it does not have to be placed against a wall in order to look good.
The drawers are fitted with very stylish chrome knobs. This beautiful item is able to be minimalist, classy and stylish all at the same time.
Antique furniture made out of Birdseye Maple is quite rare and distinctly beautiful. It is a difficult, and expensive, wood to work with and, as such, tends to only be used for top quality, high end, pieces. This lovely cabinet certainly falls into that category.
Birdseye Maple occurs chiefly in Sugar Maple and is considered to be a very hard wood with a very appealing grain structure caused by the existence of the Birdseyes. As can be seen from the photographs, the wood has a lovely warm colour so typical of the best quality Birdseye Maple.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
